Sensible Upgrades for my PC

Vinnny
 Share

Hello everyone,

 

My hardware will be posted below. I've recently been thinking about updating my CPU right now but I know doing that might change everything else. When upgrading do I need to only check the socket of my motherboard or even if the socket is the same I should change the motherboard?

 

I would also like to ask some advice on what's the best processor to get. Like the cheapest upgrade or a much sensible upgrade. Thank you for your time!

 

Motherboard MSI 7A70 (B250M-Bazooka)
CPU i5-7400 CPU @ 3.00 (4 cores)
GPU NVIDIA 1050 Ti 4gb VRAM
RAM 8gb Gigabyte

EDIT: And if you don't have an SSD, that's the first thing you should get.

Well do you have an SSD? Does your motherboard support overclocking and if so will you get an overclockable cpus etc

I've been putting this upgrade as well too long. I'll get this first then, I'm just not very knowledgeable about it. Is the cable the same for SSD?

The biggest impact on the speedy feel of your pc will be getting an SSD.

Alright, so this is a much higher priority for me now. :D
